Blade Runner
The film begins with an establishing shot, an extreme long shot, thecamera slowly tracking forward, showing a vast city at night, or at least in the darkness. The sky isblack, the city is a dirty brown colour, heavily polluted with smoke; giant flames of exhaust gassesbelch out of oil refinery towers in the industrial overgrowth. From time to time, a flying car (aspinner as they are called in the original script) zips by. During the opening, the soundtrackcontributes to the overall effect of mystery and menace. It then cuts to a huge, disembodied blueeye which fills the frame completely. We see the flames above the city reflected in the eye, stunningas we do not know whom it belongs to. (At first it seems to be that of Holden, the first character wesee; equally it could belong to Batty, leader of the escaped replicants who has blue eyes). We cutback to an extreme long shot of the cityscape described above.Then the camera zooms in an upward shot on a huge, pyramid-like structure, which we understandis Tyrell Corporation's headquarters.
